The Walking Dead will have a big presence at Comic-Con once again this year. Not only is it the tenth anniversary of The Walking Dead comic book series, but there are multiple games, collectibles, and, of course, the TV series. While it has not yet been officially announced, it’s expected that the main cast & crew of The Walking Dead Season 4 will be attending Comic-Con later this month and AMC has revealed new artwork that will be on display at the convention.
The 16-episode fourth season is once again filming in Georgia and will follow up on the events from last season’s finale. The first episode will premiere in October. As previously reported, Glen Mazzara stepped down as the showrunner of The Walking Dead and Scott M. Gimple has been promoted to showrunner and executive producer for Season 4. Greg Nicotero and Tom Luse were also promoted to executive producers this season.
For those that missed the recent Season 4 casting news, Lawrence Gilliard Jr. has joined the cast as a series regular and will be playing Bob Stookey, a character from the comic book series. Chad Coleman, Sonequa Martin-Green, and Emily Kinney have been promoted to “series regular” status. While it means that they will be featured prominently in Season 4, the “series regular” status does not mean that they cannot be killed. It has also been confirmed that David Morrissey signed on for Season 4 as a series regular. Previously, he had only committed to a single season of The Walking Dead.
